Inside stateroom with twin beds that convert to a king. Every Carnival guest is assured of spacious, comfortable accommodations. All staterooms have carpeting, ample drawer and closet space, private facilities (shower, basin and toilet), telephone and color television showing first-run films. Our ships all feature staterooms above ocean level for a more comfortable cruise.
For a couple, this room is not what you'd be looking for. The beds do not push together and so if you're ever looking to share a bed, you won't be able to well.
For two people travelling separately or couples who are just looking to sightsee, this room is actually pretty decent. One of the two beds lines up directly in line (though not against) the portholes and with two portholes to look out of, both people in the room can easily see everything. Underneath is a large storage area that was great for putting things out of the way but where they are easily accessible.
The portholes provide some great natural light as well but there are thick curtains for blocking this if you want total darkness.
The storage space is also incredible with three closets for storing everything. Floor space is at a premium in this smaller room so that is a definite plus.
I did not enjoy the bathroom being at a slight rise from the floor in the living area and tripped and stubbed my toe multiple times. The bathroom itself was a roomy area with more storage space for toiletries than my girlfriend and I could even find use for. The pressure and temperature of the shower is perfect.
One last note on this room is that it's right above the engine room. Most nights, the engine noise sounded like nothing worse than a powerful air conditioner but it, and the sound of the boat rocking near sea level, were occasional companions. But besides this background noise, it's actually a very quiet part of the ship being the second from last room in the hall.
Cabin 1211 is amazing! One of the least expensive cabins on the ship, yet comes with two portholes! It was in a very quiet location, although we would hear a "clunk" from time to time. We really thought it was due to waves at sea, but it could have been any number of other things. We just never investigated as it didn't bother us.
The cabin is much larger than the average ocean view rooms. We had a complete sitting area with a full daybed, chair coffee/end table and plenty of room for luggage. We didn't even bother to put our suitcases under the bed, because there was so much area to store them. The refrigerator was nice to have. There was plenty of drawer and closet space. They were kind enough to bring us extra hangers. And don't forget those laundry rooms for pressing, washing, etc. Very handy and a lot less expensive than having it done. Read entire member review.
My husband booked a port hole room for us on the 1st floor. I was a bit concerned that I would feel a lot of movement b/c we normally choose mid-ship. We had no problem. I loved being in the port hole room, getting to see outside, but still paying interior room pricing. Our room steward was very friendly, always calling us by our first name. He never bothered us, yet our room was always cleaned! And of course, we loved our towel animals! Read entire member review.
We had a porthole on deck 1 forward stateroom 1217. It was very spacious had two little portholes to let in light. Being that it was our anniversary I had the stateroom decorated with the anniversary package $42 included garlands, streamers happy anniversary poster and a 6inch cake. The room had ample closet space, a pullout sofa and coffee table, chair and a little stool under the vanity. The room is lacking on drawer space to store all those clothing items that don't require a hanger. We all know the bathrooms are small so I'm not going to even address it, however there was enough shelving to fit both my husbands and I toiletries. My only gripe with the room is that there is only one 120 volt outlet in the entire stateroom. In today's technological advance society having only one outlet is absurd. I found myself waking up in the middle of the night to switch electronics, so that our cameras, phones, iPads, shavers can all have power for the next day. I have to look into to see if power strips are allowed to be brought on board.
Being at the front of the ship and away from the elevators the stateroom is mostly quite depending on your neighbors. However, in anything but fair seas you will hear and feel the waves crashing into the hull of the ship. One night it vibrated the entire room and the pounding of the waves was relentless. Also when the ship is pulled into or out of port you will feel vibration in the room. I used it to my advantage as an alarm clock on port days as 8am exact the vibration will begin which signal to me it was time to wake up.
Cabin 1220 - Interior w/ porthole. Great value. The 2 portholes give plenty of light and you are able to cover them and draw the curtains which provided you with plenty of darkness as well. The room was quiet, with the exception of an alarm bell ringing (kind of like an alarm clock) every so often and what sounded like dryers running. The noise wasn't loud and never bothered us, it was more like white noise. Read entire member review.
Great room. I selected it for my next cruise. One bed, two port holes, three closets. Very spacious. I am told sofa can be converted to a bed. Only consideration is that it is very far forward so if mobility is an issue, it is a long walk to many places on the ship. Read entire member review.
Excellent value! Maybe the best value on the ship! This is an Inside-priced cabin with two windows and the size of an Outside.
Very forward, so keep that in mind if you get sick easily. A little noisy when coming into port, and also under the stage so be prepared for a little music and tap-dancing on the ceiling. Noise really wasn't too bad, though. Read entire member review.
